    sslos - I'm assuming you're using a Beer EBB? Looks like a pretty light set up.

    Looking forward to building up the Cross Check that's enroute to me now. It'll be my first SSCX season.

    Perhaps not true single track, but I ride home this way after a days work, Tranquil.

    If I don't make an attempt, how will I know if it will work?

    I'm loving them. It took me a long time to get them installed and adjusted the way I like, but it was definitely worth it. Tons of stopping power definitely makes riding singletrack a lot more fun. I can lock up either wheel pretty easily. Plus they're super pretty.

    Cross top levers are a nice upgrade for riding trails. No way I'm riding in the drops, and the hoods are no good for steep or rocky stuff as it's easy to slip while on the brakes.

    Riding the tops of the bars is far more comfy for me on the trails cause I'm more upright and can get my weight back easier. I use the hoods for cruising but when it gets steep or rocky I'm on the tops of the bars!

    Cross Bikes on Singletrack - Post Your Photos



    Rode the local singletrack last Thursday (Andrews University) interesting experience. I have not rode this trail in quite some time on a cross bike. It has some rather steep downhill sections which on my old cross check I would have used my interrupter levers, however I did not put these my new bike and I still did not have any problem on them. I also seemed to climb much better on this bike then my old bike.

    I saw Cross Bikes for the first time last weekend. i was on a 29 XC bike going at a fair pace and these 2 cross bikes flew past me as if i was standing still. Impressive!

    I'm an out and out MTB'er, i ride and race a fatbike, a rigid geared 29er and a rigid SS, but this CX has really got the majority of rides lately as i have the skills for the other bikes but the hill climbs and elevation i can smash out on this bike is really making me faster on all the others.

    I love steelies, my Indy Fab is the nicest bike i own... go for a disc bike and run bigger tyres, might suck up some of the difference in steel-goodness.

    Close. It's actually Sope Creek. Sope is fast and flowy, and absolutely rips on the cross bike. I've ridden Blankets a handful of times, but I haven't ventured out there on my CX yet. Yet....
